first experiment on the axidraw: glove vectors from words in _Alice in Wonderland_, plotted radially (basically the same code as this

one more quick experiment: this is Lewis Carroll's "Jabberwocky" with each word "spelled" out using a visualization of the dimensions of the hidden state of a phoneme-to-grapheme model

(in particular, Pincelate's model, passed through PCA in order to reduce from 256 to 32 dimensions—I resized the length of the squiggle based on the number of phonemes in the word being spelled)

I think what I'm trying to do here are visualizations that appear "asemic" but that actually encode information about the text—the idea with this one is that you can actually see visual similarities between marks for words that sound similar—you can sorta see this in the end rhymes and in e.g. the "o frabjous day calloo callay" line (sixth from bottom)


(the thing that is tripping me out about this is that I'm using the same micron 03 that I use to take notes so it LOOKS to me like something I drew by hand??)

@aparrish I don't know what any of this is or means but it's the coolest

@marie_joseph @aparrish Yeah, I feel like a dog watching a juggler. I don't understand what's happening, but I urgently want to watch it keep happening.
